dlb's Send-A-Link

dlb's Send-A-Link allows visitors to send someone an email containing a link to the post or page.

The easiest method is to use Plugins > Add New in your blog's Administration menu. Search for "dlb" and click on the Install now link under dlb's Send-A-Link. Then click the Activate Plugin link.

The manual method requires several steps: (1) Download the zip file to your computer. (2) Unzip the file. (3) Upload the dlbs-send-a-link folder to your wp-content/plugins directory. (4) Go to Plugins > Installed Plugins in your blog's Administration menu and click the Activate link under dlb's Send-A-Link.

Customization of dlb's Send-A-Link is further described in the FAQ. Generally, it will be necessary to copy dsl-page.html, dsl-templates.html, and dsl.css from the plugin folder to your theme folder. Modify dsl-page.html to match the structure of your theme's page.php file. Modify dsl-templates.html to reflect the URL of your blog. Modify dsl.css to match the look & feel of your blog.

You need to register at http://captchas.net (It's free!) to obtain your own Username and Secret Key. Copy file dsl-captcha.php from the plugin folder to the theme folder. Change the values of $id and $key from "demo" and "secret" to your own Username and Secret Key respectively.

Finally, insert the shortcode [dsl-link] in your posts/pages wherever you want to show a link or icon to your visitors offering the opportunity to send a message. In your templates, insert the function dslLink(), typically as: if( function_exists('dslLink') ) { echo dslLink(); }. See FAQ to customize it.
